Wikipedia provides quite a write-up on the Kota Kinabalu International Airport. That’s not really much of a surprise. But what does surprise me is that the airport does not seem to have its own website — I thought all reasonably-sized airports have their own websites? And this is Malaysia’s second-busiest airport, too!
Wikipedia seems to have plagiarized some of its introductory content in that piece from this August 18, 2008, article: Kota Kinabalu International Airport to open tomorrow. But hey! — who doesn’t do some plagiarization?
In doing this March 26, 2012, edit to this post, I chanced upon the March 18 information that the daily six-hour shutdowns that have been in effect since 2006 for the purpose of runway resurfacing will finally be at an end by about May 1st, and the airport will thereafter operate without any interruption: Kota Kinabalu airport back to normal by May 1.
But enough of what I managed to dig up — here are a selection of other websites that have undertaken some discussion of the airport:
Safety at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) is further enhanced with the addition of new firefighting vehicles at the airport. Read the rest of the news: KOTA KINABALU, March 23 (Bernama) — The Sabah Fire and …
